The history of the 4th of July
Origins of the Fourth of July
The Fourth of July is a United States holiday that commemorates the American victory in the Battle of Bunker Hill and the subsequent signing of the Declaration of Independence. The date was chosen to commemorate July 4, 1776, when the Continental Congress voted to adopt the Declaration. The holiday originally celebrated only those who had fought in the revolution, but it has since been celebrated by all Americans.
The first public celebration of Independence Day took place on July 2, 1777, in Philadelphia. A group of women dressed as liberty caps marched through the city to celebrate their freedom from British rule. In 1887, Congress designated July 4 as a national holiday to honor America’s founders and commemorate the country’s independence from Britain.
Celebrations on July 4 typically include parades and fireworks displays. It is also common to eat hot dogs and hamburgers, drink cold beer or wine, listen to patriotic music, and watch military displays.
